try this

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            this.KeyPreview = true;
        }
        private void Form1_KeyDown(object sender, KeyEventArgs e)
        {
            //Suppose when User Press Ctrl + J then Click Button1
            if (e.Control == true && e.KeyCode == Keys.J)
            {
                button1.PerformClick();
            }
        }
        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            MessageBox.Show("Me Pressed By Shortcut !!");
        }

I will Clear my question one more time.
I am using Menu strip and for each menu item i am supposed to add shortcut keys.
My requirement is to one of the menu item , shortcut key is ALT + 1. If the end user presses
ALT + 1 then it will work. Instead of ALT + 1 if end user presses ALT + NUMPAD 1 then its not working.

Thank You.

First you should change the Key Preview properties of the form to true.
Then at the Key_Down event of the form you should try this.
if (e.Control && e.KeyCode == Keys.M)      
            {
               Perform the operation that you want to do.
Form 2 =new Form();   //here Ctrl+M will open form .Change it according to your need.
2.Show();
            }
if (e.Alt && e.KeyCode == Keys.M)      
            {
               Perform the operation that you want to do.
Form 2 =new Form();   //here Alt+M will open form .Change it according to your need.
2.Show();
            }

Thanks
