Conditional start Contains or RegEX not working

Hello All,

 

I am trying to start the workflow using conditional start i.e. when a status of a list item is changed to IA Submitted mode.

1] Status field is a lookup value "6;#IA Submitted"

2] Workflow to start when items are modified and when Status field  contains "IA Submitted"

 

The workflow starts regardless of what is the status value. I even tried using "Regular expression" instead of "Contains (ignoring case)" but it does not work as intended. Any ideas? I am trying to avoid using an Event receiver to update a column and then using the "Equals" operator as suggested in some other posts. Please advice?
