3. Create measure.

Measure =
var _select=SELECTEDVALUE('Append1'[Merged])
return
IF(
    _select in SELECTCOLUMNS('Table',"age",CONVERT('Table'[age],STRING)) || _select in SELECTCOLUMNS('Table',"gender",'Table'[gender]),1,0)

4. Place [Flag]in Filters, set is=1, apply filter.

Thanks for responding
But I need to use both columns values as options in the slicer as i mentioned on the post

Yes, I know. But Power BI just nests two columns... It doesn't allow multiple columns in a slicer

Isn't there any workaround or any tricks

I don't think so, but... Let's wait and see if anyone knows something

you could use a nested slicer, or simply utilize two slicers: one for gender another for age.

Hi @BIswajit_Das 

 

I think that the maximum you can achieve is a nested slicer (if you only want one slicer):
