Pop star Ricky Martin is all for Indianness. And so are actress Sarah Jessica Parker and her gang of girls from Sex & the City. While Martin’s upcoming tour Black & White, boasts of a strong India connect, hit sitcom Sex & the City’s second movie installment brings to fore Hollywood’s love for Eastern influences.

Martin’s upcoming comeback tour is being promoted through two videos, both featuring Indian symbols and text. In My Skin Talks, Martin is seen lying naked on the floor, as strategically-placed digital tattoos start emerging on his body. Among those is a tattoo of the ‘Om’ symbol. In the video titled Revolution, the Sikh Khanda (the symbol of rebellion) and Kranti (revolution) written in Hindi make an appearance as calligraphic art.

The Sex &...women, on the other hand, confess their love for East through fashion. Cynthia Nixon sports a paisley print dress while Parker flaunts Eastern jewellery and headgear in a promo.
