Did Sridevi indeed refuse to work with Amitabh Bachchan

Working with Amitabh Bachchan is a dream for any actor. However, Sridevi proves to be the exception. If the yesteryear reports are to be believed, then it should be mentioned that the actress was not willing to work with Big B. But what was the reason for Sridevi not working with AB?
It was in the 1980s when Sridevi was on top of the world (Bollywood world) with film like Chandni, Nagina, Lamha and Chalbaaz under her belt. There was no doubt that Sridevi wanted to do films that kept her in the focus all the time. It simply means that the films should be women-centric.
If she were to do films with AB that would mean the script would be written keeping the Big B in mind. That would potentially keep Sri out of the picture. However, it should be noted that Amitabh Bachchan did a cameo appearance in Sridevi’s comeback film.
Well, Sri, times change so fast, ain’t it?
