Rudy was filmed laid on his back on a hotel room bed as a young blonde women he believed to be a reporter stood near him as part of an elaborate prank for upcoming film Borat 2.

Rudy insists he was simply tucking in his shirt in images of the footage obtained by Mail Online, as pictures showed him with his hands seemingly down his trousers.

During the film, Borat takes on the role of a diplomat from his native Kazakhstan and tries to win support from the US Government.

He said: "I had to take off the electronic equipment.

"And when the electronic equipment came off, some of it was in the back and my shirt came a little out, although my clothes were entirely on.

"I leaned back, and I tucked my shirt in, and at that point, at that point, they have this picture they take which looks doctored, but in any event, I’m tucking my shirt in."

He added: "I assure you that’s all I was doing."

Giuliani was not aware the hotel room was being filmed.

He continued to WABC Radio: "They’ll do anything. They’ve attacked me over everything possible, investigated every business dealing I’ve ever had.

"And now the idiot Borat is going after me with a totally sensationalized false account of a ridiculous movie I guess that he’s done.

"Everybody in Hollywood hates me, you know, right?” he said.

“I’m a devil in Hollywood. Nothing about me comes out in that period of time, nothing sensational about me in the movie.

"Now all of a sudden there’s all this sensational stuff about me in the movie. Don’t know if it was added, doctored, manipulated, whatever.”

Borat 2 – Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm – is set to be released on Amazon Prime on October 23.
