Rimi Sen jealous of Shaurya Chauhan?

Bollywood actress Rimi Sen was apparently miffed when co-actor Shaurya Chauhan got to wear glamorous and sexy clothes as opposed to her own sari-clad look in Nana Patekar-starrer "Horn Ok Pleassss".

While Rimi is playing Nana's wife in the film, Shaurya plays a young sexy girl in love with Rocky, played by model-actor Muzamil Ibrahim and she just wears skimpy clothes.

Even though Rimi has played a double role in the film and got to wear western clothes for her other character, her look is subdued in comparison to Shaurya.
