Unfortunately this is under idea .You cannot cross reference parent fields .You can vote for idea above .You can build visualforce if you need this functionality badly with spending some effort.

    @Raman If you have some alternative solution its better to post it here as this will help others searching for solution. – Mohith Shrivastava Jul 9 '13 at 7:37

In order to get the custom field of one object on Second object, I would suggest to create a Formula field on Second object that takes the value from custom Field of one object.

Once this field is there, you can then create a custom list view and display the Custom Field on the list view.
