Run VLC as root in kali linux 2.0

This error says straight forward vlc can not be run as root privileged user. What to do now? Don’t be panic. Here is the hacked solution :-D
vi /usr/bin/vlc
search for geteuid and replace it with getppid

Save file & Exit.

Now it should work, try to run it again ;-)
