Sacha Baron Cohen is shooting his forthcoming film, "The Dictator", in New York on June 14. Dressed in a pink T-shirt and denim shorts, the "Borat" actor is filming a scene where his character snatches a plate of meal and a glass of wine from a lady outside French brasserie Orsay. He later quickly runs away while holding the food.
This comedy drama film is inspired by Saddam Hussein's best selling novel, "Zabibah and the King". It revolves around a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.
Besides Cohen, this movie also has Ben Kingsley and Jason Mantzoukas take the supporting roles. Larry Charles serves behind the lens for the movie which is scheduled for May 11, 2012 release across the U.S.
