Film director and leader of the Polish Filmmakers' Association Jacek Bromski told Polish broadcaster TVN24: "He was one of the best Polish specialists, one of the best-known on the planet. Poland was his passion.

"For us, for the group he was a mainstay of quality, everyone accumulated around him. He was constantly present in the life of the film-production group, he was a mentor, a paragon."

Mr Wajda had recently been hospitalized and died on Sunday night, said Bromski.

Mr Wajda, who made more than 40 feature films in a profession crossing 60 years, investigated the subject of Poland's turbulent wartime and comrade history through his movies like Kanal, Man of Marble, Man of Iron and Katyn.

Bbc.com. reported that Donald Tusk, Poland's previous Prime Minister and the present leader of the European Council, tweeted: "We as a whole come from Wajda. We took a gander at Poland and at ourselves through him. What's more, we saw better. Presently it will be more troublesome."

In 2000, Mr Wajda was granted a privileged Oscar for his commitment to world silver screen.

Wajda's last film "Powidoki" (Afterimage) was picked as Poland's authentic passage for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 2017 Oscars. It recounts the biography of the vanguard painter Wladyslaw Strzeminski, who endured under the post-war Stalinist government in Poland.

Tributes came in for the producer from various quarters.

Film pundit Tomasz Raczek said: "Clean silver screen will be in grieving for quite a while."

Performing artist Daniel Olbrychski, who featured in 13 of Wajda's motion pictures, including "The Promised Land" and "The Maids of Wilko", told TVN24: "We could feel the adoration for our gathering of people through him. In any case, when he scowled only a bit, I knew I needed to attempt and improve."

Andrzej Wajda is made due by his fourth spouse, performing artist and stage architect Krystyna Zachwatowicz, and his girl, Karolina.
