'Borat' plays 'Bakshi' in The Party remake

British funny man Sacha Baron Cohen is going to star in a remake of the cult Peter Sellers film The Party.

According to the New York Post, Cohen’s role is that of a bumbling Indian extra named ‘Hrundri V’, who attends an over-the-top Hollywood bash and ends up disrupting everything.

The ‘Borat’ star has been tipped to reprise Sellers' role in the 1968 comedy classic, reports Contactmusic.

In the original movie, The Party, Sellers plays a well meaning, but hapless Indian actor who is accidentally invited to a major Hollywood party, and he causes havoc there.

Baron is most noted for his comic characters Borat, a Kazakh reporter, Ali G, a junglist-hip hop gangster wannabe from Staines, England and Bruno, a flamboyantly gay Austrian fashion reporter.
