[Openstack] [Neutron] Need L2 Connectivity between the extra two nics between the VMs created on OpensStack

What kind of cable? What protocol will be carried over it?
Traffic between VMs on different hosts needs to be encapsulated by a
protocol like GRE or VXLAN to carry it over the real network so that
imposes some limitations on emulating a 'direct wire'.
If you need to carry some other l2 protocol between two VMs, I suggest that
you just establish and L2TP connection between the hypervisors.
