Khujista Akhtar Jahan Shah (4 October 1673 - 30 March 1712) was the fourth son of Emperor Bahadur Shah I. He was made Subahdar of Malwa (1707–1712) and raised to an Imperial Mansab of 30,000 Zat and 20,000 Sawar. After his father's death, he sided with his brother Mu'izz-ud-Din and defeated his other brother, Azim-ush-Shan in 1712. But Mu'izz-ud-Din disagreed with him over the distribution of the Imperial treasury and fought a battle against him in which he was killed along with his eldest son Farkhunda Akhtar.
