First it was Aamir Khan, then it was Shah Rukh Khan and now it's Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan, who's bagged the Padmashri award.

And while the three stars have all won their respective awards in different years, there's one common connection that the trio share. That all the three actors have won a Padmashri soon after working with ace filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker.

Aamir won his post-LAGAAN, SRK post-SWADES, and Ash post-JODHAA AKBAR, all three films that were directed by Ashutosh. Call it the magic of teamwork or sheer coincidence, but Ashutosh sure seems to have a Midas touch when it comes to bagging awards. Now, do we see the queue of actors trying to make it in Ashutosh's films doubling up?

CHECK OUT: The Padmashri is such an honour
