Fix Python/Kubernetes issue: Python requests package fails to get weboage when run inside a kubernetes pod

I have a kubernetes cluster which contains two pods with two different applications: app1 and app2.

app2 has an API that takes a URL parameter and returns that webpage. Internally it calls that page using python [login to view URL] package.

app1 makes a call to app2's API with a URL so that it can get that webpage using python's [login to view URL] package as well.

If I make a [login to view URL] call from outside the kubernetes cluster form my local system's shell to app2 with a url parameter, it returns the page.

But if if app1 makes the same [login to view URL] call with the same url parameter (app1 is in the same cluster as app2), the [login to view URL] in app2 fails to get the provided url's webpage and crashes.

If I make the same request to app2 from a docker container outside of that cluster, that's successfully returns that page too.

I can't get my head around it why?
