Dr. Rajit Ratha is an antagonist in the 2012 film The Amazing Spider-Man and was portrayed by Irrfan Khan. His character was specifically created for the film, but has not featured in any Marvel comic books.
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.
- In the The Amazing Spider-Man video game adaptation of the film mentioned that he was eventually killed by The Lizard, seemingly confirming the scene's canonical continuity.
