Borat 2: How old is Maria Bakalova, the actress who plays Borat’s daughter? In her breakthrough role, she has a much-discussed scene with Donald Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani. Now, fans want to know Maria Bakalova’s age, Instagram and more.

Set to be released tomorrow, 23 October and 14 years in the making, Borat 2 promises to take viewers on a wild ride, starring Sacha Baron Cohen and Maria Bakalova as father and daughter. And rumour has it, Bakalova is just as daring as her on-screen dad.

Maria Bakolava‘s age revealed

According to IMDB Maria Bakalova is 24 and her birthday is 4 June, 1996. She was born in Burgas, Bulgaria and developed a passion for singing and playing the flute around the age of six.

Bakalova went on to study at the National School of Arts in her hometown and later at the National Academy for Theatre and Film Arts in Sofia, where she graduated in 2019.

Not even a year after her graduation, she featured in the sequel to Borat, one of the best-known satirical comedies of all time.

Maria Bakalova seems to be a pretty private person and does not take to posting on social media very often.

In Borat 2, Bakolava gets a makeover to look as unrefined and unattractive as possible. In reality, however, the actress is drop dead gorgeous as you can see on her Instagram, where she goes by the handle @mariabakalovaofficial.

What else has she appeared in?

The 24 year old Bulgarian actress seems to be at the beginning of her career. Having only appeared in a handful of Bulgarian films, she is not yet widely known, but definitely on the rise after her appearance in Borat 2.

Some of her previous roles include Transgressions (2018) and Last Call (2020).

Bakalova seems to be just as outlandish as her on-screen dad, Borat Sagdiyev.

One of her aliases in Borat 2 is Sandra Jessica Parker. Throughout the film she puts on one scandalous stunt after another., one of which has put Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, in the media spotlight. The scene in question shows Giuliani meeting with Bakalova who is disguised as a journalist, and later being caught by the cameras in a compromising position, which he has since addressed on social media.

Twitter’s response:

There is another scene where Bakalova, as Borat’s daughter, accidentally eats a plastic baby cake ornament and her dad takes her to a women’s clinic to “take out the baby”.

Borat 2 will be available from tomorrow on Amazon Prime Video and you better bet we will be ready with popcorn. Here is the trailer below:
