A hypocrite by any other name...

Mid Day reports:
Raj Thackeray, Shiv Sena leader Bal Thackeray’s nephew got director Deepak Balraj Vij to change the name of his forthcoming movie Bombay Godfather to Mumbai Godfather.

Said Raj, “You should love the city you live in. If you are in Mumbai, address it by its original name!” Bal Thackeray, incidentally, was instrumental in changing the name of Bombay to Mumbai.
But, um, shouldn't the same rule apply to the Thackerays, who were originally Thakres?
