Virsa is the story of Nawaz Ali and Ranvir Singh Grewal and their families. About 20 years ago, both of them migrated to Sydney, Australia, where they met and became the best of friends. Ranvir opened an Indian restaurant, which became a runaway success. Nawaz Ali opened a shop opposite Ranvir's restaurant. It did well, but he was not as successful as Ranvir. Nawaz Ali was very grounded in his culture and values and this helped him to remain level-headed. Ranvir got carried away by his success. He became very conscious of his money, status and reputation. The difference in outlook and behaviour drive the two friends. However, Nawaz still cares for his friend and tries to keep their friendship alive.
