Sculpted Dreams

Model Adhiraj Chakrabarti who has walked for Dior, believes in following his heart and scaling greater heights

Adhiraj Chakrabarti shifted from Kolkata to Mumbai, to pursue his budding dreams. He has plenty to be excited about, having just completed a stint at Lakmé Fashion Week, a campaign for Cotton World and a shoot for L’Oreal.

Brimming with energy and passion, he says, “Modelling hadn’t always been my focus. I was inclined towards the performing arts. In school, I was always part of theatre groups and dramatics. I was also very athletic – a state-level swimmer and a national rower…. It was in college that everyone would tell me to get into modelling. My greatest support is my family, especially my mum. Still, I was very certain that I wanted to finish my education. I obtained my degree in Mass Media and specialised in advertising.”

He continues, “I have learnt a lot by being observant. I look up to several people and try to imbibe good aspects from all of them. My first commercial print ads, the Garnier contract and all the fashion weeks have been important milestones. But my most cherished moment is when I walked for Christian Dior in Shanghai.”

The chiselled exterior shelters a softer side. “In my free time, I enjoy writing poetry and playing the flute. I also manage a health food café called Fellas, in Mumbai.”
