She says, "I was born in Trichy and studied in Chennai till my fifth standard before moving to Kerala. So, I'm comfortable speaking Tamil."[1] Shivada received praise for her portrayal of Manga, a Malayalam village girl, who runs a dhaba.[5] While Sify wrote "new find Shivada...steals the show. She lights the screen as she executes the loud, aggressive and righteous Manga with a lot of style and élan",[6] Baradwaj Rangan called her a "terrific newcomer".[7] In her next film Zero, a supernatural thriller directed by debutant Shiv Mohaa, a former assistant of Bharat Bala, she plays Priya, "a modern-day wife, who is also orthodox and holds on to some traditional values".[8] In March 2017, Shivada signed new project which is to be directed by Maya fame Ashwin Saravanan to star along with S J Suryah and Wamiqa Gabbi.[9]
