Los Angeles: Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen says he was compelled to opt out of Quentin Tarantino`s western `Django Unchained` due to his busy schedule.

The actor says he didn`t have time to shoot a scene as he was busy editing and releasing "The Dictator" and filming "Les Miserables". He admits it was a tough decision to have to let the Tarantino film go.

"I was editing `The Dictator` and we were very close to release and Paramount wouldn`t push the date, and then I knew I`d have to jump straight from there into `Les Miserables`," deadline.com quoted Cohen as saying.

"It basically became a choice of either pulling out of `Les Miserables` or pulling out of `Django`. I`m sure `Django` is an incredible movie, but it was essentially one scene," he added.
