After that he hosted the regular morning shows of Tadka -- Naman, Ek Cup Chai and then finally his regular show Solid Breakfast till 11 AM.
After achieving his goal, an elated Sufi said, "This is a rare achievement and I was not too sure of being able to finish it, but thanks to my programming head, Vikas Tiwari, at whose behest I accepted the challenge, my entire Tadka team and the love of my listeners in Jaipur, I found the encouragement to finish the endeavour.”
