Chechnya's Kadyrov Stars in Time-Travel Film

Kadyrov posted videos and pictures of his first acting experience online, which showed him wearing a metal helmet and a black surcoat.

Strongman Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov put his whimsical side on display as he made his acting debut in a short feature film about time travel.

The film's protagonist, played by Kadyrov, has a special helmet that can transport its wearer back in time.

"The film shows the beautiful life our ancestors led, how they treated each other respectfully, how nicely they hosted guests, how they worked and raised real warriors and brave young men," Kadyrov wrote on Instagram on Saturday.

Kadyrov posted videos and pictures of his first acting experience online, which showed him wearing a metal helmet and a black surcoat.

According to the Chechen leader, the low-budget film, titled "The Magic Comb," was shot in one take and with a single camera.
