While neither of the two parties has confirmed the reports, Ranaut took Aaryan's side late on Friday.
Sharing the link to Dharma's announcement, she said, "Kartik has come this far on his own, on his own he will continue to do so, only request to papa jo and his nepo gang club is please leave him alone like Shushant don't go after him... (sic)."
Tweet: 'Kartik no need to be scared of these chillars'
Expressing her support, Ranaut asked Aaryan not to be "scared" due to the "nasty articles" that blame his "attitude for the fall out."
Drawing a comparison with Sushant Singh Rajput, she wrote, "They spread same stories of drug addiction and unprofessional behavior for SSR also."
She also mocked Johar's production house for saying they would be keeping a "dignified silence" on the matter.

She concluded the Twitter thread by sending love, writing, "Know that we are with you, the one who did not make you can't break you either (sic)."
The post resonated with her fans, raking in more than 13,000 likes within hours.
