Hi Karthikeyan,
  • Workflow - Does not fires untill Re-evaluate workflow checkbox is ticked on your field update
  • Process Builder - Does not fires untill Re-evaluate workflow checkbox is ticked on your field update
  • Trigger - Will fire if conditions are matched

Thanks both! Under Approval Process Field update, I checked the "Re-evaluate workflow checkbox" which helped me fire the workflows and process builder!
