Hi Deeksha,

 

No the bulb wouldn't glow.

 

I've posted answer to your previous question on Capacitor blocking the DC.

 

By that concept, the entire potential of the DC Voltage would be droped across the Capacitor, to keep it's charge = CV.

Hence no potential drop across the Bulb (and hence it wouldn't glow).

 

Hope that helps.

 

All the best,

Regards,
