Cohen was then banned from attending the ceremony and any further events for the evening.
– The ‘Arabic’ language that Aladeen and Nadal spoke in the scene shot in the helicopter was actually Hebrew.
– Sacha Baron Cohen was born in Hammersmith, London. In addition to Aladeen, he is well known for his other characters Ali G, Brüno, and Borat. Wow Wow Wee Wow! Very Nice!
