Bringing in a revolution is never an easy one, there needs to be enough determination, involvement and a strong motif to make it work in your favor. The entire journey only gets tougher just when these revolutions get religious and spiritual. There are continuous clashes of interest among the crowd and hence overcoming never gets easy. However, there is the need of a positive force, which actually drives the motion forward and helps it get successful. The celebrities have always been a useful tool to drive the public in favor of any revolution.
As a result of this, most of the organizations, try engaging celebrities who support their cause.
