Aniruddha Chakladar... an Introduction.

The Journey

Years of relentless effort, meticulous hard work and a constant process of learning and unlearning has given shape to the brand named Aniruddha Chakladar. The quest had begun about two decades back when Aniruddha, with a vision to create, design and improve had taken up the course at Shahanaz Men's World International, Delhi. The thirst of becoming master of style and make up did not cease there. He went on to assist Mr. Pandhari Juker, leading makeup artist of the Indian Film Industry. Over the years he kept on honing and nurturing his skills to emerge as one of the leading makeup artists nationwide. "It's been 18 long years, the quest is still on, me and my team are still at it...," says Aniruddha. True, the quest to transcreate, transform and add character to the most mundane faces with the help of a few brushes and a magical hand is still on...


Aniruddha has created a niche for himself in the fashion industry. For years his brand has been associated with leading ad agencies, churning out some of their best ad campaigns. His client list includes some of India's biggest brand names. He also conducts workshops through the year for leading cosmetic brands and media and corporate houses. Besides this, writing columns for leading newspapers and fashion shoots for regional and national magazines keep him busy. Aniruddha is also well known for crafting actor and model portfolios. He is an artist with a difference. His interest lies not only in creating a glamorous picture, but in creating varied characters out of the same individual.


A workaholic by nature, Aniruddha has also made his foray into films, with special emphasis on look designing and character building. He has worked with top directors like Aniruddha Roy Choudhury, Rituparno Ghosh, Aparna Sen, Atanu Ghosh, Mainak Bhoumik to name a few. His long list of films includes Kagojer Bou, Bedroom, Takhan 23, Maach Mishti n More, Elar Char Adhyay, Subho Mahurat, Antaheen etc.

Bridal Makeup

Among all these, Aniruddha's passion, he says, lies in dressing up a bride for her D-Day. He is famous nationwide for his bridal make up. His clientele include Indians, NRIs and even brides of other nationalities across the globe. For him it is not just about make up on the wedding days, rather he lays special emphasis on every aspect of bridal make up, starting right from prior discussions with the bride and her family to costume, jewellery selection and look designing, thus conceptualizing the entire look of the bride for the most important day of her life. Aniruddha treats each bride separately and styles her retaining her individuality, accentuating her attractive features and concealing imperfections...transforming a girl into a bride within her own personal and comfort framework. Thus, the Aniruddha Chakladar Bride is not just beautiful but a confidant woman altogether.

It is sheer magic that he wields with his palette and brushes. A master craftsman yet so simple, humble and down to earth...The Aniruddha Chakladar Experience is truly one of a kind.
