What if I put same robots.txt file in multiple directories and folders?
User-agent: * Disallow: /otherdirname/dirname2/
Can it'll affect anyhow ??
And how much time it generally takes to refine the search engine results?

No, robots.txt should be placed in root directory only.
General for search bots there is no rule to ban those directories. There are search bots, that will crawl your robots.txt directories as well.
First: it's useless to put a robots.txt file anywhere else than the website roots. Web crawler ONLY check at this places: http://www.yourwebsite.com/robots.txt
Your example tell to EVERY web crawler (of course, only "legal" one, bad robots don't care) to not index /otherdirname/dirname2/. It's NOT disalowing to crawl /otherdirname.
You might need MANY Disallow command to reflect your needs.
