A Macedonian singer has threatened to sue the makers of the film Borat for $1.2-million over the unauthorized use of one of her songs, a report said yesterday. "I will sue them and demand 800,000 euros," Esma Redzepova, one of the most prominent Roma singers in the Balkans, told the Serbian daily Politika.

Caje Sukarije can be heard at the beginning of the film, while Borat, the fictional Kazakh journalist portrayed as a racist buffoon, makes fun of villagers in the Central Asian country. It is also played in the background during all of Borat's flashbacks to his homeland.
