This depends on the framework(s) you are using. Can you give us more details about your application?

Since you are using osmdroid take a look at the osmbonuspack. I'm not familiar with osmbonuspack (nor with osmdroid) but Tutorial 1 describes the steps for displaying a route.

But sir i clearly mentioned i want to add or integrate the .gpx file. The tutorial 1 dosent mention anything about .gpx file

That's correct, as far as I can tell osmdroid + osmbonuspack don't support GPX files directly. But with a little parsing you can extract the coordinates from the GPX file and build the polylines yourself.
