Shivada started her acting career with a small role in the Malayalam film Kerala Cafe. But the role was not that impressive. Shivada later worked as a television VJ. It was at that time that director Faasil found Shivada as the heroine of the film Living Together. Later, he auditioned for the Tamil film Nedunchalai.
Shivada said that after hearing these questions, he even asked Murali if he could postpone the wedding. He also said that Murali had given him full support. Because both of them love movies. He also said that he agreed to go to Chennai for shooting on the third day after the wedding only because he was Murali. When I reached the set on the fourth day after the wedding, the director told me to remove my thali. Since I don’t know much about things. Shivada said, “But my mother did not agree, I took one of my mother’s necklaces and put thali on it and hid it from the outside.”
