Hi Alex,

don't use drywall in your shower unless you are installing Schluter - Kerdi !!

Hardibacker is very smooth and you can mesh tape the joints with thin set as you set the sheets. tap them in with a float the get a nice flat finish.
you can do a liquid applied waterproofing membrane like Redgard or HydroBan is you want.

I wouldn't use a tile guy telling you to use drywall in the shower with 2x2 sheets.
