When a light bulb is first turned on, its temperature will be as room temperature and the filament will have a lower resistance than when it is hot.
This lower resistance means that there will be more current through the lightbulb filament while it is colder since the resistivity is at its minimum value, so do .
This suddenly high current flow will make the filament temperature increases very fast and this temperature increase will melt part of the filament immediately.
From all the above, if the temperature change is huge, the filament will be destroyed, and the current will stop.
