i have created visualforce page with multiple extension.

For ex: for controller one(cntrl1) i have created method(methd1) and for controller two (cntrlr2) i have created same method(methd1). Now on button click in visualforce page i want to call methd1 from cntrlr2. How i can achieve this?

    It is important what extension is defined first, bacause it overrides the same methods from all other extensions: Overrides are defined by whichever methods are defined in the “leftmost” extension, or, the extension that is first in the comma-separated list.

You can not really control which action you want to call. The first class in your extensions will have always the highest priority : doc here.

//it will always call method from cntrlr1 first
<apex:page standardController="Contact" extensions="cntrl1,cntrlr2">

//it will always call method from cntrlr2 first
<apex:page standardController="Contact" extensions="cntrl2,cntrlr1">

Better for you if you change the name of your methods.
