"Do you think what happened to you, Peter, was an accident? Do you have any idea what you really are?"
―Rajit Ratha[src]

Dr. Rajit Ratha is minor character in the 2012 film The Amazing Spider-Man and was portrayed by Irrfan Khan.


The Amazing Spider-Man

Ratha was a scientist and colleague of Curt Connors who worked at Oscorp for his superior, company founder, Norman Osborn. Osborn is apparently of ill health and charges Ratha with speeding up Connor's biological research in order to find a cure for himself.

Ratha pressures Connors to start human trials right away after a successful limb regrowth was conducted on a mouse. Connors argues primate DNA is too complex to start so soon and refuses. Ratha then says Connors involvement was now irrelevant as the formula now belonged to Oscorp. He then informs Connors he was fired.

Spider-Man saves Ratha from Connors on a bridge after he transforms into The Lizard. Spider-Man holds his car from the bridge, saving him.


  • Ratha appeared in a deleted scene with Peter in The Lizard's sewer lab, and is killed by Connors.
  • By pressuring Connors into rushing into the tests that turned him into the Lizard, Ratha is technically the true villain of The Amaizing Spider-Man, and, disregarding the aforementioned deleted scene, the only one to get away with his actions.
