Bollywood actor Sridevi passed away on Saturday night in Dubai. The actress was 54. Hailed as the female Amitabh Bachchan of Bollywood, Sridevi was famous with her co-stars. The actress made her Bollywood debut with Solva Sawan, went on to rule Bollywood for years to come.

Steven Spielberg, who was making Jurassic Park in 1993, was keen to cast the actress in a small role in the film. She was at the top of her career and felt the role didn’t meet her stature. Sridevi refused Spielberg and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan made her mark in Hollywood.

Jurasssic Park become a massive hit, with its reboot launched in 2015.

Jurassic Park was just one in the long list of film Sridevi rejected. She also said no to Darr opposite Shah Rukh Khan a few years later. Sridevi had told media then, “After Chandni and Lamhe, I feel Darr would have been an ordinary character for me. If I’m playing Shah Rukh Khan’s role, then of course, I would have loved to do it. The character Juhi played was new for her and so it was good for her. But for me, it was something I had done many times before.”

Sridevi will be missed.
