Bootstrap currents in the low collisionality regime in nonaxisymmetric toroidal plasmas are calculated analytically using a model drift kinetic equation. The results obtained using the analytic expression are compared with those calculated from the numerical solutions of the drift kinetic equation. Qualitatively and quantitively, the results are in reasonable agreement.
