I can understand the appeal...
But your Upwork profile - including all portfolio items - is not supposed to have a way to contact you directly. Because clients are supposed to contact you originally through Upwork.
Behance portfolios are intended to be a means by which potential clients can see your work and contact you.
So the short answer is no, this is not allowed.
You might be able to add such a link and not get caught with it for a while. But if caught, you could be asked to remove it. Or your profile could be suspended. I would definitely advise against it.
okay thanks preston

while in proposals is it allowed if i am right ?
re: "actually i saw few profiles which had behance portfolio links posted anyways i wont add it to my profile"
You are welcome to flag those profiles and report their Behance portfolio links, if you want to.
re: "while in proposals is it allowed if i am right?"
Yes. That's totally fine.
