Shiva is an Indian film actor who has featured in Tamil language films and had previously been a radio jockey with Radio Mirchi. Acting mainly in comedy films, he rose to fame following his performances in the Venkat Prabhu directorial Chennai 600028 and Saroja, before also featuring in Thamizh Padam.
Shiva’s first film role was a cameo in the 2001 film 12B. He debuted as a lead actor in Venkat Prabhu’s 2007 sports comedy Chennai 600028 alongside ten other debut actors. His next role, again under Venkat’s direction, was the thriller Saroja. Both films were box office hits.
After one year, he starred in Masala Padam, alongside Bobby Simha, which won positive comments and performed well. He acted in that film because of his friendship with Debut Director Luxman. His next release is likely to be Chennai 600028 II: Second Innings, the sequel of 2007 blockbuster Chennai 600028.
