I tried that but when I disable an extension in one instance, it gets disabled in the other too. My requirement is that an extension should be enabled in one instance & the same extension should be disabled in another instance. Is this possible?

I don't think that is possible with installed chrome but you should be able to do it using portable versions alongside the installed one. You would not be able to have both running at the same time however as Chrome will complain that an instance is already running when you start the second.Google Chrome Portable | - Portable software for USB, portable and cloud drives
