I am using one Apple ID for two iPhones which seems to be fine,however when I download an app on one iPhone it gets downloaded on the other too. even if I upgrade an app it gets upgraded on the second iPhone as well.

How is that possible and can I disable it ?

Probably automatic downloads are enabled.

You can disable them in Settings → Store as described here.
