Former actress Mimi Khan has received a $2.2 million salary as the Prince Charles Foundation’s chief executive officer.
The former Indian film star was paid an annual salary of $1.5 million in 2016-17, according to a report by The Guardian.
Khan, now 53, was appointed as the foundation’s CEO on August 15.
The pay was reported in an official document.
She previously worked for the charity, which has a $5 million annual budget, in the US.
Kamal Haasan, the foundation president, said Khan’s appointment had been made with the expectation of further strengthening the foundation as a business and philanthropic enterprise.
“We are thrilled that Kamal Haasani has joined our team,” he said in a statement.
“She is the first woman to lead an organisation of such size and ambition and her experience will be of invaluable value to our mission to empower women globally.”
Khan has previously been praised by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for her role in the recent movie, “Mujtabaar” in which she plays a mother who becomes embroiled in a political crisis after her daughter’s death.
“Kamala is the ideal leader for us.
She has tremendous potential, great ideas and will be an effective spokesperson for the foundation,” said Mr Modi in a press release.
Kan, a former model, also received a monthly salary of around $2,400 in 2017, according the Guardian.
The princely salary is one of several compensation figures that were revealed in the 2016-2017 financial year.
The Guardian’s report said that Khan earned $1,845,917 in 2016, while she received $2 million.
